CS29 Lidded Budweiser Stein by Ceramarte AB111.
Comments: This one is another very early example of
these steins before Ceramarte began marking their
items with dates. I've done a bit of research and
evidently what is most important about this
particular stein is that " Budweiser Champion
Clydesdales " and " ST. LOUIS, MO. " are printed
rather than in script. The lid is not smooth, but
rather looks like hammered aluminum. No chips or
cracks, the stein is in wonderful condition inside
and out. Bottom has the " Ceramarte MADE IN BRAZIL "
inkstamp but no other text. Wonderful embossing all
around and care was taken to create a look of great
age; rather an antique sort of treatment.
Color: Tan w/nutmeg stain, red, green, yellow,
black, brown, etc.
•Depth: 3 5/8" base
•Width: 5 1/2" including handle
•Height: 5" or 5 7/8 including thumbrest

the A&Eagle opposite the handle, handle is also
heavily embossed. Bottom reads in PRINT: "
Exclusively handcrafted for Promotional Products
Group "and below that is the Ceramarte MADE IN
BRAZIL logo. There are two characters incised on the
bottom that could be anything from 15 to 38
depending on how you look at them. All over
Color: Brown, cream, green, red, yellow, etc.

•Width: 5 11/16" including handle

Antique Beer Stein, Pre Pro Wayne Brewing Co
Comments: This is a pre - prohibition piece, so get
it while you can! The face logo is WAYNE BREWING Co.
ERIE, PA. and the bottom is in script and reads
Tho's Maddock's Son's Co. Trenton, N.J. What appears
to be a chip on the mouth turns out to be something
that happened at the factory before the final glaze,
because even in the pictures you can see the
unbroken gloss of the glaze in it and in person with
magnification, you can see bubbles in the clear
glaze at the bottom of that area. Two areas of white
on the front are also not chips, but missing blue
glaze. Harder to photograph was the area around and
under the handle, where it looks like the darker
blue part of the glaze got thick and dripped. The
blue there is nearly black and is not entirely
covered by the clear final glaze. A very rare piece
to add to your collection!
Material: Ceramic (?)
Condition: Antique Excellent
Color: Flow Blue
•Depth: 4 1/8" base
•Width: 5 1/4" including handle
•Height: 5 7/16"
Jax Beer Tape Measure for Distributor AB108.
Comments: Here's something rather unique; a Jax tape
measure! The tape is metal and extends to 35"
without forceful pulling, so I assume that to mean
that it is a 36" measure. It does not retract on its
own, but is easy to send home with just the smallest
pressure. The hole on the opposing end is for
attaching to a key ring. The front with the Jax logo
is very clear and crisp; the back seems to have had
a color bleed problem at some point. It says: LOUIS
F MACHULKA "Distributor of JAX beer" and the part
that comes after than says WHARTON -BAY CITY and I
know this because I live in Wharton. Whatever word
was at the bottom is lost and I cannot hazard a
guess as to what it might have said.
Material: Plastic & Metal
Condition: Very good
Color: Bone, red, golden
•Width: 1 9/16"
•Height: 1 1/8"
Jax Beer Stein AB107.
Comments: Here is something a bit more rare; a Jax
stein. Jax items are more difficult to find and what
is mostly found with the name is either a bottle
opener or a pilsner type glass. This stein is in
excellent condition with some vague crazing that
requires close examination to pick out. Bone color
glaze inside and out with gold wheat and the red
background that you associate with the Jax sign.
Metallic gold on the rim is in very nice shape too.
No chips or cracks.
Color: Bone red gold
•Depth: 3 5/8" base
•Width: 5 1/8" at top of handle
•Height: 5 3/4"

Budweiser Barrel Stein Mug Ceramarte, Pre-Date
Comments: Wonderfully rendered barrel design for
Budweiser by Ceramarte, the 'rust' on the nails and
bands looks very realistic. This was made before
Ceramarte began dating their items (which I believe
was sometime in the 1980's) and has only the
aluminized paper label. Heavily embossed A&Eagle
appears on both faces of the stein; look through the
pictures to see why you want this mug! Everything
about this stein is in wonderful condition, inside
Color: Tan, brown
•Depth: 4 5/16" across embossed eagles
•Width: 5 7/8" at handle
•Height: 5 1/2"
Antique Advertising Beer Budweiser Clock Clydesdale
Comments: Of course it works; I would not show you a
clock that didn't. This one is the perfect clock for
the game room or wet bar, or even a kitchen if you
like the kitchen to be a bit different and not full
of cows, chickens, pigs, strawberries, or whatever.
As you can see, the clock offers a bit of dimension
by having the white face below "Budweiser" tilted
back and the gold wagon and team in front of it. The
clock's hands are actually on the outside of the
cover, which seems to give it even more depth
somehow. There is a small section of bead chain (the
string is long gone) to pull to turn on the light
behind the face.
Color: White, red, etc.
•Width: 13 1/2"
•Height: 13 1/2"
SOLD Antique Advertising Beer Ashtray Pearl AB103.
Comments: Not much Pearl stuff out there, so I'm
glad to have this ashtray for you, and even more
glad that it is in such good condition. It is
actually in better condition than the pictures show;
that cloudy area at the top of the red triangle in
the picture on the right is not there anymore. I
didn't see that until the pictures were loaded, and
I have since cleaned that off, since it was on the
inside and the paint is actually on the outside. So
you have no scarred or missing paint, and no clouds,
chips, or cracks to the glass, either.
Color: Clear with red logo
•Width: 4 15/16"
Antique Advertising Beer Ashtray Falstaff AB102.
Comments: Not much Falstaff stuff available to collectors nowadays, so I am
pleased to have this little piece for you. As you can see in the photos, the
paint is in great shape, and the iridizing is in great shape too! No chips or
cracks, so it will be a nice piece to add to your collection.
Color: Marigold iridized glass with red text
•Width: 3 7/16"
Antique Advertising Beer Glass Lone Star AB101.
Comments: This is the 'barrel' glass that used to come across the bar to you
upended over the top of your opened beer bottle. That was before taverns became
such dives that the simple courtesy of a glass became unknown; 'ladies' didn't
drink beer out of a bottle and men of decent breeding didn't, either. This is
the Shield logo, below which appears the legend "makes the most of nature's
best". The paint is in excellent condition, with no fading or scratches.
Color: Clear w Red Logo
•Height: 3 1/8"
